Revolution “Born in the USA” Review

Revolution is a show that is cursed with an intriguing premise. A show like Mad Men can rely on it’s drab office setting to contain its intense character drama. Game of Thrones can contrast its Lord of the Rings-lite motif with its adult sensibilities. However, there is almost nothing past or present that is similar to Revolution. It makes the audience yearn to know more about the surrounding universe, it brings up logistical...

Revolution “Ghosts” Review

Revolution is a frustrating show. It likes to play with the expectations and emotions of the viewers, not through intelligent writing, but through greatly fluctuating quality and baffling character motivations.

I can feel my dreams of a season 2 slipping away. At the very least, we still have a good portion of the already commissioned season 1 left and Disney XD...

Revolution “Nobody’s Fault But My Own” Review

I’m really getting sick of having to eat my words. I’m beginning to think that Revolution exists only to spite me, and the more venomous I get towards it, the better quality the episode they’re going to throw at me the next week, just to spite me. Revolution has been a mess since the sloppy pilot, yet it somehow stays high enough in the ratings to justify its continuing existence. Perhaps it’s these few, good episodes that keep the...
